“What kind of ogre am I?


What do I know of life?


Why can't I cast away these cookies,


And just start living my life?


Why can't I just stop eating them,


Till I just don't give a damn?


And maybe then, I’d finally know,


What kind of ogre I really am.”


 


From An Old Ogre’s Song


 


.


 


I was lost in my Cookie-Ogre War thoughts


Deep in the black bowels of my old ogre cave


When that dreadfully cheery Postman arrived


With a package that he said I would truly crave


 


As I held this heavy bundle in my hairy arms


I sniffed a very heavenly aroma from deep within


I now drooled feverishly and excitedly tore it open


We Cookie Ogres ‘on the scent’ cannot hide our sin


 


And what should this ravenous Cookie Ogre find


But an autographed picture of A Pax herself inside


With dozens of scrumptious freshly baked cookies


I was now tempted to put away my foolish ogre’s pride


 


There was also a very lovely note inside the huge box


That proclaimed Queen A Pax now finally wanted a truce


And just as I was about to devour this lovely peace offering


After all these dreadful years of war - I suddenly felt - Foot Loose


 


As I soon merrily danced all around my cave savoring the moment


My cavernous hungry ogre’s mouth now severely drenched in drool


I instinctively began forcing myself out of my sheer and utter ecstasy


I somehow sensed more sinister treachery – this old ogre ain’t no fool


 


I dropped that box of poisonous cookies on the filthy cavern floor


And watched in horror as my new pet ate a cookie crumb and died


My heart was once again shattered - I had loved my little Spiderilla


And oh how this wretched old drooling Cookie Ogre now sadly cried


 


Yet More Treachery from this truly Evil Queen


Yet More Misery for this Wretched Cookie Ogre


As I buried my sweet Spiderilla near the old swamp


I knew in my heart that this war would never be over


 


Sleep Sweetly My Sweet Sweet Tiny Spiderilla


I shall bring you fresh flowers each and every day


And I your distraught Cookie Ogre Now Vow to Avenge You


For Your Untimely Death – This Very Wicked A Pax Will Pay


 


 


What kind of fool am I?


What do I know of life?


Why can't I cast away this Cookie War,


And once again start living my life?


Why can't I just stop writing these,


Till I just don't give a damn????


And maybe then,


Perhaps only then,


I’d finally know,


What kind of fool I really am…

I nearly missed this, Ed because of the name change, then I happened to catch the title. I knew I was missing something when I read Pax_A's most recent chapter and she spoke of Spiderella and the poisioned cookies and I had no idea who that was. This ongoing saga is really fun...I wait with baited breath for your next entry.
Take care,
Sherry

Ogre Ed...;)

That wicked and calculating Lady Queen A Pax has the upper hand just now, and it is time that you turned the tables on her..
Poor Spiderilla died a ghastly and untimely death at the hands of the Cruella of the Cookies...
I say give her a taste of her own medicine in the most unexpected way...;)
Love it !
